Our Mission

To share the beauty, art and culture of this extraordinary country – Ireland!

This unique trip is designed to be a friendly and personal tour for travelers 18+. Our small group (8 people) will get a true taste of Irish hospitality at local family run restaurants and smaller boutique hotels/ B&B’s with a full breakfast each morning. You will have lots to see and do, however, your schedule will be more relaxed and flexible than the large bus tours. I am your guide throughout this adventure – no artistic ability required – just a desire to enjoy the culture, the arts, the food, the fun – and of course, the wonderful people of Ireland. This is an experience, not just a holiday!

Won't you join me?

Come along with me and I will show you the rich and diverse world of Irish art and culture on a 10-day tour. Working in collaboration with Debbie Marcotte of Halton Trafalgar Travel, all the details of your trip will be handled with ease.
Halton Trafalgar Travel is an Adventure House Travel Company, which is a TICO Agency.

  • Not only does Maureen know her way around Ireland, but she speaks some Gaelic, can drive easily on the wrong side of the road (or as the Irish would say, the right side of the road), she knows some of the locals, she knows the best places to eat and is a wealth of information on Irish history, cool facts and great places to visit.

  • We had a wonderful time in Ireland! Maureen introduced us to, and entertained us with the marvel of Ireland. Her passion shines through in her knowledge of its history and culture. Our group was small which made it much more personable and flexible. Accommodations were top notch and centrally located. Our favourite activity was our Irish lace making class where we spent the afternoon conversing with locals while learning a new craft. Kinsale was our  town, I mean, how could one not help but fall in love with this picturesque, quaint little town with its maze of narrow streets? Be sure to stop by the Poets Corner for a tea and scones! Thank you Maureen and Ealaiontours for arranging such an amazing tour! The next time we travel Ireland, we will definitely be contacting you!
